Wasabi Spiced Kale And Savoy Cabbage Chips

Something green, something hot. And definitely healthy! My new dehydrator recipe meets these standards. My kale and savoy cabbage chips are not only wonderfully green, they are wonderfully hot because of a generous dose of wasabi powder I used to spice them. And they are very healthy and good for you because all the ingredients used in this recipe come with wonderful health benefits:
  • kale and cabbage are rich in vitamins K, C and A, minerals, especially potassium and copper, and powerful cancer-fighting compounds;
  • green tea is loaded with antioxidants;
  • wasabi, which is a Japanese variation of horseradish, contains anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer compounds;
  • lemon is rich in vitamin C and flavonoids that have been shown to have antioxidant and cancer fighting properties;
  • virgin olive oil, which is on of the main ingredients of the Mediterranean diet, is one of the healthiest oils out there. it comes with a unique combination of essential fatty acids and phenolic antioxidants, and the vitamins E and K;
  • Celtic sea salt is rich in minerals and trace elements.
Add these ingredients to your diet as often as you can and remember that prevention is better than cure.

  • 2 cups kale leaves, torn into small pieces (hard stems removed)
  • 2 cups savoy cabbage leaves, torn into small pieces (hard stems removed)
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 Tbsp virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 tsp wasabi powder (add more if you can tolerate the heat)
  • 1 Tbsp matcha powder
  • 1 tsp Celtic sea salt

  • Place kale and savoy cabbage in a large bowl.
  • In another bowl whisk a dressing using olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, green tea, wasabi and salt.
  • Pour the dressing over the greens and mix well making sure that all the kale and cabbage leaves are well covered.
  • Spread the dressing-coated kale and cabbage leaves on dehydrator trays and dehydrate at 115°F for at least 4 hours. Check if they are dry and crispy and dehydrate some more if needed. You will notice that kale dries much faster than the Savoy cabbage.
  • Store in an air-tight container to prevent the chips from moisture. Enjoy often with a cup of green tea!
